A Tamil Tiger in the urban jungle

Accompanied by a woman and a girl he barely knows and carrying a dead man’s passport, a member of the Tamil Tigers arrives in France as a refugee. In order to obtain a residence permit the three pretend to be a family, and they are forced to keep up the charade even after they have been placed in a run-down housing project in the suburbs of Paris. Claiming the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Jacques Audiard’s follow-up to A PROPHET and RUST AND BONE is a gritty and gripping depiction of refugee life in modern-day France.
